Circulating levels of free and total VEGF-A, soluble VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2 and angiogenin during ovarian stimulation in non-human primates and women.
Moreover, most of these biomarkers are associated with kidney and genitourinary diseases.[33] A research had demonstrated that many mRNAs in the MVs were related to cell migration, angiogenesis, cell proliferation, immune response, and histone modification.[34] MVs contain varieties of angiogenic proteins, such as angiogenin and FGF which mediate the angiogenesis and calcification of vascular smooth muscle cells.[34],[35] Besides, EVs can avoid complement-mediated lysis by expression of CD55 and CD59[36] and participate in antigen presentation between different cells of the immune system.[6] In addition, EVs are also involved in tumor metastasis.
This complex process is controlled via an appropriate balance between angiogenic factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and angiogenin (1) and antiangiogenic factors such as thrombospondin-1, endostatin, and angiostatin.

In particular, DPSCs have been found to secrete and produce abundant angiogenic factors, for example, colony-stimulating factor, interleukin-8, angiogenin, endothelin-1, angiopoietin-1, and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 [94-96].
